COVID-19 UPDATE FOR OUR VOLUNTEERS
As the world slowly reopens, we are very excited but also cautious, because we serve a population most at risk from COVID-19. At this time, we are not requiring the COVID-19 vaccination to volunteer at Open Arms. However, we are continuing to require masks and social distancing and are proceeding with caution.
